Last week I was in Dubai for the Dynamic Datacenter workshop along with two partners from Qatar – Mannai Trading and EBLA Consulting.
Among Qatar attendees, we had Pradeep Joy and Johny John from Mannai Trading and Bashar Badr from EBLA.
The course provides IT Professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to install and configure the underlying components of a Microsoft Dynamic Data Center solution. Partners were trained on how to onboard a Proof of Concept using the DDC Toolkit. The products include Windows Server 2008 R2 Hyper-V, System Center Operations Manager, Configuration Manager, Data Protection Manager and Virtual Machine Manager.
The trainer was Jeffrey Roach from Wright & Robbins (a Microsoft vendor based in Seattle) and it was four days packed with excitement and interaction. Jeff is now in Prague, delivering the same workshop to our European partners.
While we were in Dubai, we also got a chance to attend a separate Unified Communications Sales training, which included a hands-on user experience of Microsoft UC solutions.
